Too late Coast - I already sent a check and am waiting for the money to be wired to me - and he offered me millions!!
I might also be named Queen, as he didn't have any heirs.

Miss Lina has been a busy person!

Trulia is aware of the emaii, and has taken steps to cancel the account.

Unfortunately, "Lina" isn't the first , nor will she be the last promoting such a scam.
Hopefully, most are smart enough to recognize it for what it is....and delete it.

I received the same one.....

Seeing i am still waitiing for $500,000 from the canadian lottery and the $2.45 million form the South African diamond mine and another 2 million from the late great ruler in the other part of Africa and that darn $10,000 a week form working at home that will be rolling in any day.

This one didnt sound as real as the others so i forwarded to Emily@Trulia.
